Program Description

Event Details

A brief business meeting will include the election of our new trustees and officers, a celebration of those who are retiring from our Board of Trustees and the presentation of awards for Wilton Library's outstanding volunteer and staff person of the year.

Immediately following the meeting, our guest speaker will be Connecticut's State Librarian Deborah Schander, in conversation with Wilton Library's Executive Director Caroline Mandler on the role of libraries and how to cultivate a culture of civic engagement.

Deborah Schander began her tenure as Connecticut’s first female State Librarian in 2021. Prior to joining the Connecticut State Library, she was an educator and law librarian, serving in library administration at Seton Hall University and Vanderbilt University as well as working at law libraries in Georgia and California, where she specialized in foreign and international legal research, technology, and library outreach. She holds a JD and an MLIS from Florida State University (2007). 

Deborah is an appointed member of Connecticut’s Commission on Educational Technology; the Data Analysis and Technology Advisory Board; the Connecticut Semiquincentennial Commission; and the CT Humanities Board of Directors. She represents the State Library on more than two dozen other local, regional, and national library, law, history, and archives interest groups.
